SPECIES INFO

The Blue-fronted Lorikeet, Charmosyna toxopei, also known as the Buru Lorikeet, is a parrot found on the island of Buru, Indonesia. It is 16cm, green with a blue crown patch, yellow underwing bar and red on the sides of the base of the tail.

It is only known from seven specimens, collected before 1930 in hill forest between 850-1000m. More recent sightings are not well authenticated, so its remaining range is uncertain.
